​Heartland

This song is by The Cross and appears on the single Life Changes (1991).

How long can this go on
How long can we see this wrong
And sing the same old song
There's a desert all round me
And the valley of apathy
Far as I could see

I was on the outside
Always looking in
Now I stand
I can't turn and face away

Here I will stay on my own
I will pray all alone
On this stage in the Heartland

When the color of your skin
Decides where you begin
Then that's what lies within

So if you walk alone
While others cast a stone
Stay on your own

The changing of the new tide
Something you can't hide
Take your stand
This truth will fade away

Here I will stay on my own
I will pray all alone
On this stage in the Heartland, yeah

I was on the outside
Always looking in
Now I stand
I can't turn and face away

Here I will stay on my own
I will pray all alone
On this stage in the Heartland

Here I will stay
On my own
I will pray
All alone
On this stage
In the Heartland
The Heartland

Here I will stay
On my own
I will pray
I ain't never going home
Alone on the stage
In the Heartland
